I did a install of Qmail using the following docs;
http://www.lifewithqmail.org/lwq.html

And I'm recieving the following error;
[root@maverick root]# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

Thanks
Maverick

1.  Try "netstat -na|grep 25", that will show if Qmail is listening on port 25 or not.

2.  Try "ps -A|grep qmail", you should see "qmail-smtpd" in the list, if it's not there check the logs (not sure on the location, /var/log/something I think) for errors and report back to us.

Give those a go and let us know the results and we'll take it from there.

Oh, almost forgot, try telneting to your IP address not localhost.  If Qmail is bound to the IP it won't accept a connection from anywhere else, even localhost.

If you followed their instructions the output of "qmailctl stat" would possibly be useful too :)

Hi,

I made a mistake in setting up Qmail. Re-reading the installation guide fixed that.

RTFM relay permissions set :)


echo '127.:allow,RELAYCLIENT=""' >>/etc/tcp.smtp
qmailctl cdb

I needed to load the db from the tcp.smtp file.

Sorry for wasting your time. I am not sure what I should do with this question as I'm sure your tips would be helpful to someone in the future.

Thanks alot
